targeted at individuals. on friday, president obama met with german chancellor angela merkel here at the white house, and the two made a pretty big announcement, which is that they had agreed to move forward with sectorial sanctions, if the crisis in ukraine worsens after the may 25th election. so i don't anticipate that we'll see any new sanctions prior to that. then a final decision will be based on what is actually happening in ukraine. this is significant, craig, because the u.s. had wanted to enforce sectorial sanctions, sanctions against the larger sectors of russia's economy. but the u.s.'s european allies had been resistant to do so because their economies are so tightly linked with that of russia. and german chancellor angela merkel was really the lynch pin here. the fact they've agreed to move forward with these sanctions means they are on the same page about something about which they were sharply divided a few days ago. in terms of what those specific sanctions will look like, that remains to be seen. interesting to note, president obama did not mention sanctioning the energy
